I'm getting just a little fed up with this weather now!

I was trawling through old photos and came across this one of 2 year old daughter in rainy weather mood, and thought I'd at least show a little solidarity with my damp friends in the north of Europe. She was in a foul mood at the time. Bit like your weather!

I think I'll dress like that aswell lol

You'll notice that even at that age, she'd perfected a typical Italian hand movement!
What's the forecast for the UK like at the moment? Any sign of improvement?

11 Jul, 2012

 

Not a lot ,Gattina..respite on Thursday here in Yorkshire..and SUN ,would you believe? ..than back to same old,same old,..:o(((..as I type,some blue sky to the right,and black clouds to the left ...grey in between !

Too cute!

Aaww bless - love it :))
At the moment, Gattina, it's same old same old. In other words, blue sky and sunshine as I type (will put the washing on the line in a minute), but rain forecast for later (so will curse myself for putting the washing on the . .etc.)

Oooooooohhhhhhhhh love the new avatar Gattina Jx

Fantastic pic, both of yours :)
I hope you didn't set her out and pose her Gat?? ;)

11 Jul, 2012

 

I heard on Radio Carmarthenshire yesterday, that Wales is short of water lol !

11 Jul, 2012

 

She poses like it's second nature, Lil. Seeing as she's forty in two months' time, bit late for it now. This is from when we lived in the UK!
Hywel, please tell me you are joking!

He would do Gat, but he's too busy trying to squeeze into a red PVC garment !

11 Jul, 2012

 

Oh, that's lovely! Why is it that only little girls look so cute in all the wet weather gear! As soon as I get near wellies and a waterproof, I end up looking like a demented sailor!

11 Jul, 2012

11 Jul, 2012

11 Jul, 2012

 

Yes, that just about describes the mood here in Scotland too Gattina....loving her outfit. I seem to remember I used to have something similar but with flowers on.

To cute for words Gat she is adorable I love the outfit to it would make a good card advertising British holidays LOL .......

11 Jul, 2012

 

It must have been another very wet British summer when that was taken, round about 1974, what she's standing on isn't grass, it's liverwort.

11 Jul, 2012

 

Great piccy Gattina, Im sure i saw them jackets on the catwalk for this years summer range!

11 Jul, 2012

 

So someone must have known what you were in for then: How's that for long-range forecasting?

12 Jul, 2012

 

Lord, no word from Pimm, hope he hasn't got stuck in all that red PVC. What a thought. LOL Jx

12 Jul, 2012

 

Well, Jane, he's either miffed with me over something, or he's too busy playing his bongos on another blog.

12 Jul, 2012

 

Think Willi and I may have scared him away last night.....

12 Jul, 2012

 

Oh god, Lil I did see that pic. I just can't think of anything to add. I feel faint. Who is the chap btw, is it someone we know? Jx

12 Jul, 2012

 

It had me laughing so hard Jane, tears streaming down my face....priceless! He may be my next ex husband ;)

12 Jul, 2012

 

Ummm, I have a few of those. Not an ideal fashion accessory. Do we know who the bloke is? Jx

12 Jul, 2012

 

No, just a bloke I suppose :)

12 Jul, 2012

 

It's priceless. Jx

My daughters going up to Stornoway this weekend for the music festival - they have a severe drought up there and no rain at all. Think I'll move up there. Oh yes - nice wet weather gear and I do love the basket - they were all the rage a few years ago, not that I remember that far back!!

12 Jul, 2012

 

No rain......................hard to imagine. Jx

12 Jul, 2012

 

I think C's making it up!
Summer must well and truly have kicked in - we at last have the Italian annual equivalent of a hose-pipe ban! We have been informed that we are not to water our gardens between the hours of 11.00 p.m. and 8.00 a.m. until 30th September: it's only to help with the low water pressure, not to conserve it!!! So, VERY early mornings watching the sun rise, the morning star, and watering the beans, with an early cuppa tea in one hand, to the sound of birdsong. Not such a trial, especially as we can go back to bed afterwards! We never really want to, though.

12 Jul, 2012

 

No I'm not - they said so on the BBC weather last night - so they must be right!! Please come over here Gattina, we can let you have loads of water for free.

12 Jul, 2012

 

Maybe for a week, C, then I'd want my warmth back, I think.

13 Jul, 2012

 

Late...but I got here..

I thought of the Donald Sutherland film as well Jane.... but then I realised something else..... I have seen that face before stropy chops or not...She is the image of her mother. :0)

14 Jul, 2012

 

I have just gasped in horror and amazement! How very dare you! Pims, you'll be a very fortunate man if I ever speak to you again. Got the hump now. Going off to sulk in a dark corner. The dwarf in "Don't look now", yes, but Daughter?????? Never!

14 Jul, 2012

 

:))

14 Jul, 2012

 

Loooooooooooooooollll! Children, now behave or you'll have to sit in the naughty corner. Oh sorry, it's already full of GOYers. Well you won't have any pudding after tea then. (Said in best school teacher voice). Jx

14 Jul, 2012

 

Actually, come to think of it, and paddy well and truly over, there are photographs of me and some of daughter at very early ages that are pretty much indistinguishable. Sob!

15 Jul, 2012

 

oooohhhhhh that's Baaaaad. Jx

15 Jul, 2012

 

I have a photo of my grandaughter about the same age dressed exactly like that, taken about twelve years ago. 7pm and we have just had a mega downpour here in lincs with thunder and lightning thrown in, summer is s`posed to arrive tomorrow, hope is does as everybody breaks up for the holidays....

18 Jul, 2012

 

Apples don't fall far from the trees Gattina.. ;)

18 Jul, 2012

 

Well I think she looks a dear little girl.

18 Jul, 2012

 

Looks can be very deceiving, Cammomile!

18 Jul, 2012

 

Lol..Cheeky Chops. XX

18 Jul, 2012

 

I know what you mean. You only had to turn round and my youngest had taken all her clothes off in the pram!! Then on the eve of the Millennium she did a streak at midnight. I think all that sort of thing has stopped now - well I hope so. :)

19 Jul, 2012

 

When Daughter was two, I was in the bank, queueing at the counter, when a small hand prodded me and handed me a soaking pair of knickers, much to the amusement of everyone else, saying "I did a wee in them, you can hold them now." That evening, reporting to her Granddad on the 'phone, she said, very gravely "I tooked my knickers off in the bank today - it was VERY disgusting!"
She'll be 40 in a few months time, and occasionally she still strips, but not quite so publicly, and she doesn't need to wet her knickers first. And I don't need to take charge of them. Thank goodness.

19 Jul, 2012

 

I bet you remind her of the incident at every opportunity. I spent the first 6 years of the girls lives with socks and knickers in my handbag too.

19 Jul, 2012

 

The poor girl will be mortified , Gatt .
Just love the pic though .
Don't little ones do grump well sometimes ?

19 Jul, 2012

 

And some big ones, too! Actually, Cammomile, she seems to remember and mention this incident better than I do - no need for maternal embarrassing duty there!

20 Jul, 2012

 

so sweet :-))

Thank you, Paul! How are you doing?
